Fox Clock by Jill Stewart
This crafty fox runs along the top of this beautifully crafted clock.
With the wording " A fox went out one starry night"
A great alternative to the usual retirement gift, a celebration of a new home or a treat just for you.
A little about Jill Stewart the artist....
I got into making jewellery years ago as I had always loved to make things, and this is a way of making small things that I think of like illustrations
I was brought up in the Northumbrian countryside, and natural things, flowers, birds, colour and beauty are what I like best. I hope to develop my work into illustration and have some fun with colour!
I use silver, brass and copper at the moment, often etching it to add pattern and texture. Then shapes are cut out by hand, filed and then soldered to create the pieces, and add oxidised colour to the copper. Cleaning and polishing is the last step. The clocks are made using a big torch flame for the soldering. Because there are so many processes each piece can take a few days to make. i am inspired by details of the natural world around us.
Note: Clock runs on a battery which is not included
